The Strong and the Brave?

Ya know, lately I have been seeing a lot on the news about how brave this person was or how strong they were and it just baffles me.

Apparently, those terms mean something different these days.

It used to mean you had to do something.
Now, you don't have to do anything but maybe live.

Which is what our bodies and souls want to keep doing.

This person was brave for surviving a sexual assault or cancer.

They are strong for not dying.

Not to say that these people should have died or anything.
But, they are no different than millions of people everywhere, every day.

It is just life and sometimes it really sucks at times.

People don't just lay down and die when bad things happen.
They fight for their life.
That is human instinct.

We all have it.

I just don't get why this person is strong or brave for doing something EVERYONE will do.

Just my little thought for the day.
